Old Shoe
Old Shoe
Old Shoe is a five-piece Americana Folk Rock band based out of Chicago, Illinois. Made up of talented songwriters from across the country, hailing from as far away as Alaska, the band's compositions paint a diverse landscape of American life. Constantly playing throughout the midwest, their wealth of experience in the musical world never ceases to grow. Their performances will draw you in at the start and leave you panting on the dance floor by the end.



Having recently released their second album, Let Yourself In, the band already has enough material for a third album that they play during their live shows. They cover Little Feat, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder and Warren Haynes to name a few. In the last year alone, Old Shoe played at Summer Camp Music Festival, Blottopia XII, Tall Tree Lakes Music & Camping Festival, Cabin Fever, Ribfest Chicago and the Whippersnap Music & Arts Festival. They even hosted their own Shoe Fest, which featured Great American Taxi, Kyle Hollingsworth and Split Lip Rayfield.
Cosmic Railroad
Cosmic Railroad
Cosmic Railroad is a jam band based out of southeastern Wisconsin, born sometime in 1999. As the story goes, all the guys in Cosmic Railroad were involved with their own respected bands. These bands would book shows toget
her from time to time, then they began having a jam session at the end of those nights, consisting of everybody from both bands at once. Sometimes you would have four guitar players, two bass players, two drummers, a percussionist and a whole slew of singers all at once on stage, throwing it down. This is when the idea of “Cosmic Railroad” was conceived. At first, the bands would cover a lot of tunes from “The Grateful Dead, Phish, Dylan, etc.” Then, as things started to take off even more the bands thought it would be a good idea to learn each other's songs so they didn’t always have to play cover tunes when they got together. Over time, they did away with the other bands and started to book shows as Cosmic Railroad. This is what they've been doing since.
